Chelsea playmaker, Eden Hazard, has rebuffed suggestions that he might emerge captain of the English Premiership leaders should current captain John Terry leave the club at the expiration of his contract this season.
Hazard was speaking to Sky Sports in an interview when he said:
“I think we have some players who can be more than a captain in this team.
“When I talk to you at the national team, I do not know if I am a good captain, but I am a captain on the pitch.
“Off the pitch I do not like to talk a lot. In England I think the captain has to talk and make people ready for the games. I am not this kind of guy, I can talk with my feet but it is not my job to talk to everyone.
“I think JT does this, Gary [Cahill], [Cesar] Azpilicueta and even Cesc. They deserve to be captain.”
